Nobody wants to look back on holiday pictures and think, “Wow, I should have deleted that one.” The good news is that with a little planning, you can smile without reservation when someone tags you in a holiday Facebook pics. How can you guarantee you look great for the holidays?

4 Ways to Look Good for the Holidays

  1. woman christmasTake care of your skin. You might feel haggard after staying up until early morning prepping holiday potatoes (and we don’t recommend that you add it to your beauty routine), but implementing a good skin care routine will help you look fresh even when you’re not. Start by washing your face, moisturizing, and applying sunscreen daily, then find a skin care routine that works for you.
  2. Take care of yourself. We know you have three million items on your holiday to-do list. But don’t forget to eat regular, healthy meals, exercise a few times a week, and get some sleep. You’ll be amazed what an extra hour of sleep and 20 minutes of exercise can do for you, both physically and mentally.
  3. Freshen up. Want a quick facial refresh before the holidays? Injectables, fillers, and chemical peels can smooth, tighten, and refresh the skin without the downtime of a major procedure. You’ll be back on your feet in five minutes. Recovery from side effects like redness, bruising, or swelling only takes a few days.
  4. Plan that procedure. If you’re not making a big deal out of the holidays this season (or if your spouse is willing to pitch in with the cooking and cleaning), you can use the extra vacation time to schedule the surgery on your wish list. Speak frankly with your surgeon about how much time you have for recovery, and be realistic when choosing your date. Even if you’re back on your feet for Christmas, you may have residual scarring or swelling. If you want to snap next year’s Christmas card photo on Christmas Eve, you may want to wait until the New Year for your procedure.
